“Not worth the walk”
Review of Ensemble Artisanal

Ensemble Artisanal
Ranked #3 of 130 Shopping in Marrakech
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed April 8, 2014

We were disappointed in the Ensemble Artisanal, very few shops and the quality we thought was no better than a lot of the stalls in the souks. Whilst it is promoted as hassle free shopping it was so laid back that we couldn't find a salesperson in the carpet shop. Also in a couple of the shops they indicated they were prepared to negotiate so in reality the prices are not fixed and thus one cannot use as a benchmark. The positives - there were some nice garden beds. We quickly made our way back to the souks.

There is a shop that sells china bits and pieces but beware ! The shop owner seems to take great pride in wrapping up the goods in massive of paper, again and again and then binding them with cello-tape- don't let him do this. I am sure he means well but I took them in my hand luggage and when I got back they were smashed beyond repair. The market is a nice place but I preferred the souks.

OK, they have fixed price here and there is no pressure to buy, but I thought it was more fun to huggle your way in the souk. It was nice to watch the ladies weaving carpets. One of them let me try making the knots.

Enjoyed a 45 minute stay at the artisanal, the goods for sale seemed of a good standard and is a good place to visit for those who don't like to barter.

This shopping complex is very nice. Fixed prices with a variety of shops. A good idea to head here to get a quick overview of prices you would expect to pay in the souk. Less than 10 mins from Djema el-Fna square
